Chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer (CEST) MRI in the mammary gland is affected by the high fat content in the human breast. Chemical shift induced artifacts are visible in the Z-Spectrum. We showed a method to test and verify water-fat separation techniques in vitro. Transfer of the gained insights to realize water-only CEST-MRI in the human breast is currently under investigation.
